That’s genius! I love little bits of celebration on a big bowl of oatmeal. I always loved your crumbled bits of muffins on top. :-)

15 Erika @ FoodFitnessFun February 19, 2011 at 10:19 am

That bowl of oats looks delicious. You should definitely eat this on your birthday! ;-)

16 AJ @ Flowing to Fifty February 19, 2011 at 10:21 am

I’m not a big oats fan (sorry!), but I think sprinkles and a groovy bowl might make it as appetizing as yours looks.

17 kristen February 19, 2011 at 10:25 am

Kath, when you use vanilla, what type of vanilla do you use? Normal baking vanilla extract? Or is there a “real foods” version you recommend? I have heard that vanilla extract (the kind our moms used to make Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies) has some dangerous additives. Can you please, in all your RD glory, talk about this a bit?

THANKS!

Reply

18 KathEats February 19, 2011 at 10:27 am

I just use pure vanilla extract with water, alcohol and sugar. Maybe you’ve heard negatives about imitation vanilla, which is much cheaper?

Ah I love the idea of oats with sprinkles! That’d be so great for a birthday breakfast for a roommate/husband, etc. I’ve said this before, but you have the best dishes. I want almost every single bowl you put on your blog! Have a good day!

Looks like a lot of fun. Maybe I’m just boring but I like my oats simple- plain with fresh fruit. Then I actually can taste the fact that it’s oatmeal! Guess that wouldn’t make for such fun photo though.

Is it super windy down there? It was so bad up here that the porta-potties at my race were knocking over and sliding through the streets like they were on wheels!! Hilarious — as long as you weren’t the poor person stuck in them.
